Syrian army seizes 70 handmade rockets from rebels in Deir Ezzur

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army discovered and seized tens of handmade rockets and missiles from armed rebels in Eastern Syria on Sunday.

The army’s units seized more than 70 handmade rockets in Al-Orfi region of Deir Ezzur in Eastern Syria today, FNA dispatches said.

The Syrian army raided the concentration centers of the so-called Lashkar Al-Abbas armed rebel group in Al-Orfi region and seized a large number of guns in addition to the 70 improvised rockets.

Meantime, the army targeted and destroyed the concentration center of the Azadegan of Sham in Al-Shamitieh village, killing tens of terrorists and injuring dozens more in heavy clashes.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against the Syrian police, border guards, statesmen, army and civilians being reported across the country.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.

Thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes.
